For our December OC Podcasters meeting we have a speaker lined up, DJ Steve Boyett. We’re asking that you PLEASE RSVP on the meetup site so we can get a headcount for how many will be attending.
As a writer Steve Boyett has published novels, short stories, and feature screenplays. In 1999 he took some time off from writing, and during this period he learned to play the didgeridoo, a unique Australian wind instrument. This led him to learn about digital recording, which led to composing electronica, which led to DJing. Which, as everybody knows, leads straight to heroin.
He swore he’d never be a DJ. When he started DJing, he swore it was just for fun and he’d never play out. When he started playing out, he swore it would only be at parties. When he started playing small clubs, he decided the smartest thing to do would be to swear never to become filthy, stinking rich.
Steve has played clubs in Hollywood, Vegas, San Francisco, and Reno; Burning Man; conventions; after parties; and private events. He produces three of the world’s most popular music podcasts: Podrunner and Podrunner: Intervals (workout music mixes), and Groovelectric (dance music mixes of what he calls New Old Funk). His novel Ariel will be reprinted in summer 2009, and his novel Elegy Beach will be published in fall 2009.
